Pulls off a good effort in a swamped genre.
19 January 2016 | by sdt-77844See all my reviews

I was not expecting much from this as it came out of the blue but was pleasantly surprised at the outcome. All the actors were more than accomplished in there roles, especially the female leads. Mr Fairbrass does his usual impression of 'wasp chewing bulldog' but also managed to at least attempt some tenderness. Some nice turns and a twist keeps the pace up without relying too much on ultra violence, of which there is plenty.

The only infuriating let-down was the damn sound balance. Whisper quiet dialogue (especially Connor) that ramps to 200db at the flick of a switch. Sitting with hand poised over volume control for the whole film got tedious!

Apart from that, good work.
